The California Natural Resources Agency restores, protects and manages the state's natural resources, including water. Their challenges are to collaborate with other government entities, businesses and citizens, reduce operational and capital costs and empower workforce to support the department's missions. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. They have implemented borderless infrastructure based on Cisco data center business advantage solutions and Cisco services for planning, design and implementation. The results of implementing Cisco were enabled secure collaboration by creating 20 distinct security zones, reduced total cost of ownership for network by 30 percent and accelerated network performance by 40 percent.
